The Courage To Try

23 Mar

I’ve never done this before.
That’s a long way down there.
What? Jump? Now?
Wow! This is great!
This is like flying!
Legs up for the landing.
That was awesome!
Let’s do it again.

Sometimes the difficult moment
turns out to be one for the books.
Great memory, experience of growth,
just plain fun. It takes courage to live
these days and the will to try.
The joy is not always in the landing,
sometimes it’s in the jumping.
Our bodies may be earth-bound,
but our spirits love to fly.
Fear not.

    I did not realize that ‘Press On’ included jumping from great heights.
